im pretty sure you are confusing it with the v8, which was slow prior to the refresh.

gen 1 v10 traps 121 in 11.6 seconds in the quarter mile stock per motortrend, among others. dct m3 is closer to 110-112.

ive driven both this and many bolt on m3's, manual and dct. the V10 r8 blows it out of the water in terms of power. it has 520 hp and weighs about the same.
No it was a V10 owned by Tony Lopez founder of Omega Motorsports Events that puts on half mile airstrip events in California, Arizona and Indiana. Saw this particular car run 50-100 times over the years.
